The last time Caltex launched new advances to their fuel was a decade ago, when they introduced Techron that helped keep engines clean — I’m sure you all remember the classic commercial that showed gas boys cleaning the insides of an engine. Caltex with Techron prolonged an engines lifespan and helps it run as efficient as possible. Today, they introduced their fuel line that now has a new active ingredient the company is calling — Clean and Glide technology — taking what they’ve done over the past 10 years to a whole new level.
Compared to their previous Silver offering, their 5-star fuel with Clean and Glide, is able to reduce friction by 41 percent and metal wear by 38 percent in tests conducted in closed environments. Prolonged use also allows for the build up of Clean and Glide molecules to make sure your engine stays lubricated and running smoothly. With this new active ingredient, they’ve also bumped up their Gold fuel variant to Platinum. Platinum contains 50 percent more Clean and Glide tech making it act faster so you feel its effects sooner.
The new fuel will be available in all their gasoline grades and in all Caltex service stations by July 1.
